Congratulations on a successful Westchester-Fairfield VisionWalk!

Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

The 8th Annual Westchester-Fairfield VisionWalk took place on Sunday, September 20th and was a huge success! We had amazing weather, smiling faces, and 200 people in attendance at Glen Island Park. We have already raised over $90,000 for retinal disease research and donations continue to come in toward our $125,000 goal.

Our teams and walkers all did an amazing job reaching out to their networks to raise funds and awareness. We are still collecting donations now and until December 31st.  

It's never too late to donate to the VisionWalk. Let's keep the thermometer rising!
